looking for partner The Fog harvesting pilot project
An established pilot project for fog harvesting is using an autonomous source of water which is the fog to turn it to a sustained source of water taking into consideration that this is a long term project. The project location: The Fog harvesting pilot project is being executed in private land in Qaser el Mushatha area ,which is located 30 KM southern to the capital city Amman ,near Queen Alia International Airport within Aljiza area. The land is being prepared to plant barley crop (Hordeum vulgare) using the permaculture principles for animal fodder, mainly sheep in the region, and human consumption. Furthermore, the land will be boarded with varieties of spineless cactus pear plants (Opuntia ficus-indica) that will be fetched from the cactus gene bank from the national Research Station. The leaves can be used also as a source of animal fodder,and fruits for human consumption. Water collected from fog and rain will be used to irrigate the barley crop and cactus pear plants. The reasons of nomination: – Targeting new source of water collection to be used for planting crops for sheep fodder which can help the Cattle raisers living outside the cities or on the edge of the grazing places. The same plants can be also a source of human consumption. – Simple tools used to utilize the fog harvesting. – Adding value to fighting hunger by improving the sheep fodder and increasing the source of locally grown red meat for human use. – Helping the segment of people who can’t have access to water sources especially those who are living in remote areas.

-water harvesting – scarcity of water solution – crops for dry lands – fog harvesting


Jordan is one of the most water-scarce countries in the world. The country’s renewable water supply currently only meets about half of the population’s water demands, with groundwater being used twice as quickly as it can be recharged. A high rate of population growth and the influx of refugees from regional conflicts are putting additional strain on an already diminished water supply. Safe drinking water and proper sanitation services are fundamental to the health and wellbeing of the people of Jordan, and water is a central component of food production and economic growth. Sustainable and inclusive access to water is critical for the country’s long-term stability and prosperity
